Getting the top and bottom of the saucer to fit together is going to be the hardest part. It' s going to need some help to keep everything level. I can reduce weight in the nacelles by vacforming the tops and rebuilding the middle sections from styrene (like the neck). 3 pieces of 5mm threaded rod connect saucer through neck into secondary top deck. Note top of secondary hull is being replaced with a piece of 6mm thick acrylic.
